Last week, we said goodbye to AIM. This week it bbq is time to say goodbye to FireBug. Having the functionally baked into browsers is a great reason to discontinue a plugin.

So bye FireBug!. You paved the way!

The memories!

Also, it means we like the software. At work, we made a gravestone for a piece of software when it went away.
